New Procedures under COVID-19 guidelines
Currently, we are offering lap swim, water walking, water fitness classes, and household swims using a reservation based system. Click here for hours. Please see www.thprd.org/portal to reserve your spot.
A mask or face covering must be worn to enter the facility. You may remove your mask for your rinse shower, while you are in the pool, and for your final shower. At all other times, you must wear your mask. This includes the transitions between locker rooms and the pool deck. During the brief times when you are not wearing your mask, please remember to stay socially distanced (6 feet or more) from others. This especially applies to those who are participating in water fitness classes.
Entry and Check-In Procedures
Please read through the following to ensure you will be prepared for your visit.
Enter through the North entrance by the Splash Pad and wait outside until doors open to be checked in. Try to arrive about 5 minutes before your reserved time slot.
Please arrive in your swim suit. Everyone will go through our coed Rinse Room* to shower before entering the pool.
Intermission between lap swim sessions will be 5 minutes, if you need to wait for a pool lane a designated area will be assigned to ensure you are 6 feet apart.
If you are doing lap swim, the lifeguard will assign you a lane number and a designated section on either Group A or Group B at the pool deck for your belongings.
If you are water walking, the lifeguard will assign you one section of the slide pool. There will be a Group A or Group B section where you will be assigned to place your belongings.
After your activity, you may take a quick rinsing shower in the main locker rooms (men’s and women’s) and get dressed, but please keep it under 5 minutes in the locker room. Please no use of hair dryers. Exit through the same North doors.
*There is an individual changing room available upon request for any ADA participants.
